Byron's Baking Powder Biscuits

4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 3 tsp. salt
2 1/4 Tbs. baking powder 3 3/4 cups heavy cream; chilled
4 1/2 tsp. sugar    

In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. While stirring with a wooden spoon, slowly pour the cream into the center of the bowl. Continue to mix until the dough just comes together. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured board and roll into a 3/4" thick circular shape being careful not to work the dough to much.

Using a 2" cookie or biscuit cutter cut out biscuits by pressing cutter into the dough and then lifting it straight out. Make sure not to twist the cutter as this releases air in the dough causing the biscuits to turn out flat. Place biscuits in a greased 14" Dutch oven leaving 1/2" space between.

Place lid on Dutch oven and let raise for 10 minutes then bake using 12-14 briquettes bottom and 18-20 briquettes top (400° F.) for 15-20 minutes.

NOTE: For even browning make sure to turn the oven and lid 1/4 turn in opposite directions every 5-10 minutes.

Serve warm.

Yield: About 18 biscuits
